Brave without choice

Brave without choice:

Don’t call me brave,

I didn’t ask for this pain

Do Not call me strong,

Because I don’t complain

Do Not think I am superior

Or magical

Or even a hero

You can be me

You can have it all

The strength, the courage,

The bravery

The everlasting inspiration

Everything it takes

To live every day

Not knowing

The strength to leave the bed

The courage to face the day

The inspiration to smile

That is


Under pressure

Making me magical

Making me different

I am you

You could be me. …Uzma Yunus
